The Labyrinth

Chapter One

Secret Path into the Labyrinth

By Ronin S. Oath and mudrakdragon1

A nineteen year old brunette girl with a pallid complexion, cat-like eyes, and neon green highlights dances around her disorderly room, listening to 'Take Me Out' by Franz Ferdinand from her Now 17 CD.

Baaaa-ring! Baaaa-ring!

"Casadena," a deep male's voice calls from another room, "phone!"

Baaaaa-ringgggg! Baaa-ring! Baaa-ring!

"Answer the phone!" the voice calls out once again.

Baaa-ringggg! Baaa-ring! Baaa-ring!

"Get the damn phone!"

Casadena, hardly hearing what her older brother was yelling at her, asks, "Wha?"

Baaaa-ring!

"The phones ringing," Casadena says happily, just as her bother yells again.

"Get that god-damned phone already!"

"Oh," Casadena pushes pause on her CD player and merrily walks across half a foot from where she was standing to where the phone sat on her dresser. Placing the phone against her left ear, Casadena greets, "Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello," the voice of Casadena's best friend says from the other side of the line.

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

"'Ello."

"Konnichiwa!"

Suddenly, the other voice says, "Guess who."

Casadena concentrates on the phone for a long moment. "Santa!"

"No, ya fool!" the other voice replies. "It's me!"

"I don't know a Me," Casadena answers, looking though her address book. "Nope, no Me."

"You know this Me!"

"Um…" Casadena sucks in her bottom lip as she thinks. "My evil twin?"

"Not even close!"

"Um… How about the Tooth Fairy?"

"No! Never!"

"Jhonen V?"

"Not in a million years…"

"I know!" Casadena suddenly shouts, bringing her hand down on a nearby table. "The Easter Bunny… man… thing!"

"I'm not a man, I'm a woman!" her friend yells. "Well… girl… red-neck gurl."

"Konnichiwa!"

"This is hopeless," the other girl replies, letting out a large sigh. "What would you say if I whacked ya up-side the head?"

"Shawna!"

"That's right!" the one known as 'Shawna' replies from the other side of the line. "You remembered!"

"Remembered what?"

On the other side of the line, Shawna bangs her head against the wall. "Do you remember who you are talking to?"

"Shawna!"

"Right. That is what you remember."

"Konnichiwa!"

"Enough with the konnichiwa!" Shawna yells.

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

"Ok."

"M-kay."

Shawna begins to growl. "Enough with the Ok's!"

"OK!"

"Grrrrrrrrr."

Casadena gulps. "Um… Sure thing!"

"Alright. Now… I was a wonderin' if ya like ta come over ta me casa-"

"Now who was this?"

On the other side of the line, Shawna bangs her head against the wall once again. "Okay! This is Shawna! I was wonderin' if you wanted to come over to my house."

"Yea, I'll be-"

"Because I have something to show you."

Picking up her all-around school bag, Casadena replies, "I'll be there in five."

"Five?" Shawna questions. "Five what?"

"Wha?"

"You just said you'd be here in five… Five what?"

"Where ya goin'?"

Shawna sighs. "Ok… I asked you if you wanted to come over, and you said you'd be here in five. Five what?"

"Oh!" Casadena says. "I'm already here!"

"Huh?"

"Yea! I was talking to you and walking at the same time!"

"Wait a second…"

Outside of Shawna home, Casadena walks up the front steps, and knocks on the door.

"Hold on a sec," Shawna says to Casadena on the phone. Putting the phone down, she asks herself, "Who can that be?" Shawna carries the phone over to the door with her. "'ello?"

"I'm here!" Casadena replies, hanging up her own phone and stuffing it inside of her all-around school bag.

"Oh… Ok." Shawna opens the door after hanging up the phone.

"Sorry," Casadena tells her as she walks into the girl's house. "It was only 3.5 seconds. I guess walking next door isn't as long of a walk as we thought…"

Shawna blinks.

"So…" Casadena looks around the highly decorated living room, which was also covered in with shelves of books and movies. "What did ya wanna show me?"

Casadena pulls a picture of Jareth off of the nearest shelf.

"The she-man?"

"No! We're going to the Labyrinth!"

"Oh!" Casadena replies. "Do you have a mirror?"

"Um… Up in my room… Why?"

Before Shawna even has time to blink, Casadena runs up the series of steps, and enters Shawna's room. Casadena glazes into the mirror Shawna spoke of. "Goblins! Take us away to the… umm… Take us away… hmmm… How did that go?"

Just then, Shawna walks into her room. Spotting Casadena, Shawna shakes her head sadly, and walks over to the girl. "Come on." Shawna grabs Casadena's hand and leads her though the mirror.

-

Suddenly, the two appear on the outside of the Labyrinth.

"Here we are!" Shawna says happily. "Do you have your camera?"

"Checko," Casadena replies, pulling a camera out of her all-around school bag.

"Alright! Let's go!"
